Science Fantasy (fantasy/magic in a modern world or tech in fantasy world)
Great definition of Science Fiction as per http://www.fantasy-magazine.com/non-fiction/is-it-science-fiction-or-science-fantasy/:

According to the Henderson Institute of Knowing Knowledge, there are three general levels of science fiction.

  • Hard Science Fiction
  • Soft Science Fiction
  • Science Fantasy
  • The three levels are not to be confused with definitions like cyberpunk, steampunk, space opera, social scifi, military scifi, etcetera scifi. Those are science fiction subgenres, not levels, and all of the subgenres can potentially fall into any of the three levels. Hard science fiction has science or technology that is central to the plot, and all of the key science or technology is explained and entirely possible given currently known scientific laws, theories and constraints. It involves no magical or supernatural elements.

    Soft science fiction is like hard science fiction, but not as scientifical. Perhaps the plausible science or technology is not explained — they have hyperdrive spaceships that work by pushing a big shiny button. Or the explanation is pseudo-science that sounds plausibly whiz-bangy but doesn’t really explain anything. Also, stories whose scientific elements are the "soft sciences" – sociology, psychology, anthropology – would likely be considered soft science fiction no matter how detailed and possible. There are still no purely impossible elements involved.

    Science fantasy is like hard or soft scifi but mixed with magical or supernatural elements, or that uses alternate or imaginary science and technology that is simply impossible given all known scientific laws, theories and constraints.

    A Beth-Hill Novel: Karen Montgomery Series, Companion Novella: Russ' Story: Capture by Jennifer St. Clair (Fantasy: Vampire)
     
    (0 reviews)  
    Long before Russell Moore ever met Karen Montgomery or set foot in Beth-Hill, he was a vampire hunter. A very good vampire hunter. Quite possibly the best vampire hunter of them all. He brought down whole nests of vampires, caring little about the consequences of his actions; anyone who lived with or helped the vampires were enemies. It was easier that way, not to think of them as people....Only an idiot would go so far as to capture a vampire hunter and try to reform him--or her.
